Achieve Genuine Relaxation
from Our Westfield Sedation Dentist
If you are one of the countless individuals who feels dread or trepidation when facing a visit to the dentist, you may think that feeling relaxed in the dental chair is impossible. At the office of Dr. David M. Weinman, we believe that everyone deserves a comfortable experience and exceptional dental care, so we offer a proven treatment option that eliminates dental anxiety altogether: IV sedation.
Why Choose IV Sedation?
IV sedation offers a wide variety of benefits in dental applications, allowing millions of patients to receive the vital oral health treatment they need without pain or anxiety. Many men and women harbor a deep-seated fear of visiting the dentist. This fear may lead them to avoid scheduling any type of appointment, from a routine cleaning to gum disease therapy or a common filling. When dental care is avoided for any length of time, these and other problems only worsen. This results in a cycle of fear and pain that could have been avoided with earlier treatment.
Fortunately, IV sedation takes both the pain and the fear out of your dental experience. A fast-acting, proven-safe medication is administered via an intravenous line, and the patient begins to feel calm and relaxed within moments. All vital signs are monitored throughout the duration of the procedure. Tension and nervousness disappear, leaving you to feel carefree and comfortable. The majority of patients under IV sedation remember very little of their treatment when the sedation wears off, if they recall anything at all.
IV sedation isn’t only for patients who experience fear or anxiety when visiting the dentist. Dr. Weinman may recommend this particular form of safe sedation for patients who are affected by:
- Resistance to traditional numbing methods (can’t stay numb with anesthetic)
- An especially strong gag reflex
- Difficulty sitting still due to special needs
- Pain in the back or neck when lying down for an extended period
